There has been a lot of talk regarding the future of Anthony Martial at Manchester United. No one can deny the Frenchman is one of the most talented youngsters in the world, but he hasn’t been able to secure a starting role yet.

And considering things are not likely to change in the near future due to the arrival of Alexis Sanchez and the team’s overall depth on the attacking end, it seems Martial could end up leaving the side. Chelsea appear as the most likely destination.

While United are not known for making deals with other Premier League contenders, there is a chance that Martial ends up joining Chelsea… but only if The Blues send Willian to Old Trafford. It’s not a secret that Jose Mourinho loves the Brazilian winger, and he is keen to bring him to The Red Devils.

In fact, Mou has tried to sign his former player time and time again, but talks have stalled. This time things would be different, as United are keen to part ways with Martial and Chelsea love the France international.

This potential swap deal worth around £80 million, and both parties could get benefited. United would get a proven Premier League talent in his prime years, while Chelsea would receive an elite prospect that could lead their current rebuilding phase.
